With the presence of five teams, the BPC Negrita Cup will once again be one of the most important events of this ancient sport in Spain. Its appeal makes this tournament an unrepeatable occasion to enjoy a show that celebrates its 53rd edition this year.

The polo players of the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona had been active for 71 years when, in 1968, they decided to organize a major international event. This great competition would be called the Winter Tournament as it would be played at the end of January. The first edition was played with great success, proclaiming the winner the Pedralbes team made up of Enrique Calatayud, J. A. Tous, Jean Gregory and Major R. Ferguson. In the 80s the tournament moved its dispute to spring, being held in the months of April or May.

In its 53 years of life, the tournament has counted with the participation of very relevant polo players and of very varied origins such as the Domecq brothers, the Trujillo brothers, the Indian Jabar Singh, Major R. Ferguson, and the Argentines Héctor Cacho Merlos, who was among the five best players in the world, Milo Fernandez Araujo, Héctor “el Gordo” Barrantes, Pablo Jaureche, Ezequiel Kraft, Mathias Magrini, Martin Aguerre, Juan Ruiz Guiñazú and Pelayo Berazadi, among others. And alongside them, prominent polo players from the Real Club de Polo de Barcelona who have competed in all editions, taking victory on numerous occasions.

Now under the name BPC Negrita Cup, the international tournament continues to bring together figures who offer the Barcelona public a frenetic spectacle without equal. Undoubtedly, the different conditions surrounding this tournament hold a bright future that we hope to share with all fans of this beautiful sport.
